At IVIM, safety is our number one priority. During your telehealth consult, a physician will review your specific medical history, current medications, and other health-related information to ensure that the supplements you have selected are both safe and specific to your wellness goals. After your telehealth visit, a prescription will be sent to one of our FDA-regulated sterile compounding pharmacies, and the supplements will be delivered directly to your door.
Bioavailability refers to the rate and extent by which supplements, drugs, and metabolites are absorbed into our bloodstream and delivered to the target tissues. The higher the bioavailability, the greater the amount of absorption and potency of the supplement.
The most significant benefit to injectable supplements is greater bioavailability, guaranteed, every time. This is in contrast to the bioavailability of oral supplements, which is highly variable. When supplements are taken orally, they are first metabolized by the gastrointestinal tract and then absorbed into your bloodstream. Many factors can impact oral supplements’ nutrient absorption, such as chronic gastrointestinal issues, stomach ulcers, metabolism, chronic illnesses, medications, diet, or even prior surgeries. Injections remove many variables by allowing the substance to bypass metabolism and absorption via your GI tract and deliver the supplement directly into your bloodstream, thus allowing for greater bioavailability.
Absolutely! Intramuscular injections are a safe and effective way to administer supplements. After placing your order, we will provide you with a step-by-step instructional video with information on safely administering your intramuscular injections. Please also be sure to review all included safety materials and protocols before your injection.
